A cool trade from a reader

I made a trade with a reader. He sent a bunch of cool stuff off of my want lists. I sent him some 1980 and 1985 Topps cards from his want list and some other Mets cards that he might be interested in. Here is what he sent:

1983 Topps from my want list. I'm down to needing 25 cards to complete the set.
A bunch of 1983 Donruss Giants cards.
A few mid-80s Fleer and Donruss Giants.
A whole bunch of 1987 Donruss Giants. All I need from this team set now is the Will Clark.
Some 1989 and 1990 Update Fleers
Cards from the 1990 Topps Traded set
1991 Topps regular and Traded cards that I needed for my Giants team sets
Some 1996 Topps cards. I wasn't collecting during this time and this is the first time I've seen the 1996 cards
Some Conlon cards of Giants. These cards are great. It's fun to learn about the game's history from the cards
The rest of the cards he sent me -- lots of Upper Deck, Stadium Club, Score, and newer Topps cards.

Thanks for the trade! :)

I notice on your blog you are breaking these sets down by year. I am doing something similar on a blog I just started, except I am taking the Topps sets and then adding any cards of other sets that were out in any given year. I am trying to find regional sets to fill in the blanks. I posted on the 1981 Giants and posted a link to this page. My blog is
